Researchers will now be required to make papers free to read within one year of publication.

China has officially joined the international push to make research papers free to read. On 15 May, the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), one of the country’s major basic-science funding agencies, and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), which funds and conducts research at more than 100 institutions, announced that researchers they support should deposit their papers into online repositories and make them publicly accessible within 12 months of publication.

Final 2014 Budget Helps Science Agencies Rebound

A $1.1 trillion spending plan for 2014 that Congress is expected to approve this week is getting mixed reviews from research advocates. They are applauding budget increases awarded to many agencies that fund the physical sciences, including NASA, the National Science Foundation, and the Department of Energy.

U.S. Science Agencies Get Some Relief in 2014 Budget

U.S. Science Agencies Get Some Relief in 2014 Budget | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

Physical science wins bigger increases than biomedical research.

The ghost of former President George W. Bush permeates the 2014 budget that Congress released last night.  His presence is good news for physical scientists, but less cheery for biomedical researchers, as Congress reserved some of the biggest spending increases for NASA and the Department of Energy (DOE). The National Institutes of Health (NIH), meanwhile, got a $1 billion increase that is drawing mixed reviews from research advocates. (...) - Science, by Jeffrey Mervis, 14 January 2014
